Professional Wimberley Metal Roofing
Investing in your Wimberley home means investing in your roof. Homeowners today have the luxury of choosing from many materials for their next roof, but this can also feel daunting. If you want a durable, low-maintenance roof that will last for decades, look no further than a metal roof!
A metal roof is an umbrella term for any roof made from metal. Each metal source and style has benefits and drawbacks.
- Aluminum is lightweight and made from 95% recycled aluminum. It contains little to no iron, so it won’t rust.
- Copper is a beautiful reddish-orange specialty metal. Real copper will oxidize over time and develop a greenish patina. Patina can be desirable, but it may also stain your siding or adjacent structures.
- Corrugated panels use an exposed fastener system where a screw is drilled through the panel to fasten directly to the roof bed. This style is faster and easier to install than standing seam.
- Standing seam roofs feature a concealed fastener system where panels interlock. The concealed fasteners are better protected from UV rays and moisture than the exposed fasteners used with corrugated panels.
- Metal shingles can be manufactured to resemble other shingle types, such as cedar, slate, or asphalt.
Is a metal roof the right choice for my home?
To determine if a metal roof is suitable for your home, consider the following pros and cons.
- Durability Most metal roofs are rated by Underwriters Laboratories as class 4, which is the highest possible rating for roofing material. A metal roof is also impervious to mildew, rot, insect damage, and fire.
- Ecofriendly A metal roof is 100% recyclable at the end of its usable life. It’s also an ideal platform for integrating renewable energy solutions like solar panels.
- Long-term investment Metal roofs last at least 50 years, if not longer. This could make a metal roof the last roof your home will need! Be sure to contact your home insurance company; they may offer a discount for installing a metal roof.
- Superior heat conduction Instead of absorbing heat and UV rays, a metal roof can reflect up to 80% of the sun’s rays! In a sunny city like Wimberley, this will help lower your energy bills.
- Installation cost Metal roofs require special skills and equipment to install correctly, leading to a higher installation cost. If you have not yet found your forever home, you may want to wait to invest in a metal roof.
- Noise Some homeowners find that the sound of hail or rain falling on a metal roof is more noticeable than on other roof materials. Noise levels can be lessened with proper insulation.
